Dräger, a safety technology company, has announced the release of its X-pid 8500 portable gas measurement device to the US market. The gas chromatography – photoionization detector (GC-PID) allows for selective measurement analysis of pre-determined compounds such as benzene, butadiene and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and provides results in as little as 30 seconds.

The X-pid 8500’s innovative operating design and wide compound range for selective monitoring allows the device to detect and quantitate over 19 toxic target compounds with the push of a button. In addition, users can add their own substances to the target compound database that would allow for detection. The device’s intuitive user interface makes this technology accessible to a broad group of users with no extensive training required.

Additional benefits of the X-pid 8500 include:

  • A streamlined version of gas chromatography analysis that is traditionally conducted in the laboratory is now available in a portable device.
  • Significant time saving due to selective benzene measurement that provides results in approximately 30 seconds for concentrations as low as 50 ppb.
  • Reduced operating costs since consumables are not used to take measurements.
  • Intuitive handling with a large touch screen all controlled by a mobile app.
